The JK lean

I have a 2011 2 door JK with a 2.5 RK flex that is about 6 months old. I noticed the driver side is 3/4" higher in the front and 1/2" higher is the rear. My question is would it hurt anything to put coils spacers on the passager side only to bring it back level? Not sure If I should do a 3/4" in the front and a 1/2" in the rear or keep them the same size and put 1/2" on both front and rear. Im kinda OCD so the lean really bothers me or i would just leave it.

It would not hurt anything at all.

Just check the axle positioning, front caster, and rear pinion angle to make sure they are all correct so the coil loads are correct. Sometimes accessorizing your jeep can lead to things like this..

Why did my jeep not lean when it was stock? Or did it lean for the 1st few months after I put the lift on. I haven't done any "accessorizing" in the last few months. It looks it just happened out of the blue. Some people told me the coils have settled that's Why it's sagging. I do not know if that's true but I was told RK triple rate coils was supposed to correct this.

It is just one of the great mysteries of the universe, like why dog's feet smell like Fritos. We all just know about it, and some of us like you address it in various ways.

A society that puts equality before freedom will get neither. A society that puts freedom before equality will get a high degree of both.

I was reading about this a few weeks ago because I noticed my Jeep had the lean also. The best answer I found was that it has to do with the gas tank being on the right side. Idk if that's the reason but like I said it was the best answer I found.

I can understand the gas tank theory if it's always done it but it just started recently.

Almost all cars/trucks "lean" due to expected weight of the driver from what I understand.
